Makerspaces

Makerspaces are the Future of Tech in Schools

Equipping students with the ability to turn ideas into tangible solutions creates enormous impact. Teachers and students need spaces designed for creating and making. Bit Space can create makerspaces in your school by analyzing existing locations within your school, discussing the types of maker activities your school wants to offer, and designing a custom makerspace that fits your school’s specific curricular goals and budget.

Transforming your Space into a Makerspace

We are a complete design-build-construct makerspace solution. Our Bit Space facilities were built by us, for us, and we can do the same for you. We’ve created custom makerspaces in a number of schools — from small spaces to huge labs, public to private schools, elementary to high schools. We have architects on staff that not only know how to best utilize a space but also understand the nuances of how an effective makerlab runs.

Designed for Lasting Impact

As makers ourselves, we know the value of a purpose-built work area. In order to maximize efficiency and price performance, we can design and fabricate all of your modular furniture, workspaces, and storage units. These sturdy plywood units are designed for kids, designed to last, and designed for making.

Designed for Kids

A makerspace can be a dense environment, with unique spatial challenges combined with a high bar for strength and durability. Solutions to these problems exist for adult makerspaces, but as veteran youth makerspace makers, we are uniquely positioned to provide furniture that is sized to youths of various ages, modular and movable, while maintaining the highest safety standards.

Makerspace Sold Separately

Already have a designed or in-place makerspace, and just looking for furniture? That’s great! You don’t need to use our design services to use our furniture — simply purchase the pieces you need from us directly.

"The training my colleagues and I received from Bit Space allowed us to move beyond tinkering with cardboard and duct tape to real materials, tools, and professional software."
